Redland Rhapsody Wins Open Division

Redland Rhapsody Chorus won the inaugural  Open Division competition at the recent Sweet Adelines Australia national Convention held at Olympic Park in Sydney. 
Instead of singing just two songs and being given marks and rankings by the official judges, Open Division allows Choruses to perform up to four songs with additional choreography, props, themes,  MC material or whatever creative ideas they can come up with.   50 randomly selected audience members vote to decide the most entertaining Chorus. 
The emphasis is on “putting on a show” to entertain the audience.  Judging by the feedback we got, we absolutely wowed them!   Although the judges do not give us official marks in this division, their technical feedback indicated we achieved a very high standard in both singing and theatrical showmanship.
This is exactly what Redland Rhapsody Chorus does best.  We are a show chorus that adds glitz and zing to every performance.  You’ll be able to see us reprise our championship songs….and lots more  at our show “Redland Rhapsody Recharged”  at Redland Performing Arts Centre in October.
